Virginia Kuhn and I have co-edited a special issue of the journal, The Ciné-Files,  “The Video Essay: Cinematic Writing” (#11).  The issue began as part of an ongoing conversation on digital scholarship with faculty and students at UCC during my Fulbright stay in Cork, Ireland and then grew into an international collaboration of scholars on both sides of the Atlantic.  Many thanks to all the collaborators and to Tracy Cox-Stanton for this opportunity to share this dialogue and experimentation in cinematic writing.
